Sony is attempting to scrub all screenshots from Beyond: Two Souls showing actress Ellen Page's character Jodie Holmes naked, according to reports from several sites this week.

The images first appeared in a Reddit forum earlier this month, though an Imgur album containing the shots has since been flushed.

In Beyond: Two Souls, Page's character Jodie takes a shower and no nudity can been seen in the retail version. However, Kotaku reports that users can access alternate camera angles when playing on a PlayStation 3 debug console.

Now, The Eskimo Press and Cinema Blend are reporting that Sony has reached out to inform them that these images are to be removed and that the character model is not in fact Ellen Page.

"The images are from an illegally hacked console and is very damaging for Ellen Page," a Sony representative reportedly told Cinema Blend. "It's not actually her body. I would really appreciate if you can take the story down to end the cycle of discussion around this."

The Eskimo Press reports that Sony said the images are to be pulled for "legal reasons."

This is not the first time a Quantic Dream game has featured nudity. The studio's last game, Heavy Rain, included a scene where character Madison could be seen nude.

A Sony representative was not immediately available to comment. Beyond: Two Souls was released exclusively on PS3 earlier this month. For more, check out GameSpot's review.
